Sipping a Beer at a Quirky General Store in San Gregorio, California
An authentic store on Highway 84 at Stage Road, full of knick-knacks and old books, is also a full-service bar, café, and Levi’s supplier. Equal parts pitstop, post office, and venue, the San Gregorio General Store hosts rock and blues bands on the weekends, and sells everything: raccoon traps, international beers, cheap wine, hand-made pottery, and delicious sandwiches. The moment you walk in, you realize it's a gem to locals and non-locals alike, and a necessary stop before or after a day on the Pacific Coast, on the sands of San Gregorio or Half Moon Bay. The hardwood floors, cowboy hat-wearing female bartender, and bluegrass music blasting in the air foster a genuine spirit transporting you back to the late-1800s when the area was a stagecoach stop to and from San Francisco.
